"Many years ago, the archmage Aesta Vessamden settled in a quiet corner of the Realm to build a tower and live out her golden years. A difficult woman to please, she added to the construction continually, and the stronghold grew into a sprawling maze of chambers and towers and courtyards. Some say she went mad there. Some say she was subtly cursed. One thing is certain, however: one day she died.
Construction ceased at her death, and as years rolled by parts of Caer Aesta fell into disrepair. Some were looted, burned, or collapsed. All that remains now of the once enormous complex is a great vault. It has withstood the ravages of time, its stones remaining unweathered and unblemished even as the rest of the Caer decayed.
The vault is the last piece of Caer Aesta standing. As the rest of the ruin yielded little of note, stories say that the vault is the final resting place of Aesta’s entire fortune: gold and jewels, to be sure, but also Aesta’s magic and research notes. And so here you are — a party of adventurers in search of fortune, glory, knowledge, or a little of all three. The stories may say that many before you have tried their skill against the vault, and none have ever returned, but you’re different. You’re sure of it. And before you stands the door into darkness."
This Adventure was run at Gencon and is part of the book "Time of High Adventure" by Crafty-Games. Pregenerated characters will be provided, if you have the Fantasy Craft rulebook and wish to bring a character of 3rd level, feel free. This will be a "dungeon crawl" so some characters won't be suitable for it: Rootwalkers, Giants, and Courtiers. The adventure runs between 4 and 5 hours but I will allow people to join or leave as necessary. I'll try to take a few 10 minute breaks throughout the game.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask
